BRIDGEPORT, NJ – The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco will make just one appearance in New Jersey this season.
And it will be a memorable one.
The all-new Design for Vision/Sunglass Central Speedway three-eighths-mile clay oval located inside South Jersey’s Bridgeport Speedway will host the powerful STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds and the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman on Sunday, April 29 for the ‘South Jersey Shootout’ event!
After three ‘South Jersey Shootout’ editions on the established Bridgeport five-eighths-mile track, the recently constructed three-eighths-mile track brings added excitement to the 2018 edition.
A practice on the new track was held on Sunday (April 8) as preparations continue for this ground-breaking event, Race No. 2 for both the STSS Velocita-USA Modified South Region and Crate 602 Sportsman series.
The STSS big-block/small-block Modifieds are set for 40-laps on the new venue, offering $5,000 to the winner, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag from a posted pay structure of more than $25,000.
STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will battle for a $1,000 winner’s share in the second round of the series’ South Region.
Outlaw Stocks (15 laps) complete the tripleheader program.
Past ‘South Jersey Shootout’ winners include Rick Laubach (2015), Wade Hendrickson (2016) and Stewart Friesen (2017). This year, it’s a brand-new game!
Pit gates will open for the April 29 program at 1 p.m., with grandstand gates unlocked at 2 p.m. The drivers meeting is planned for 3:30 p.m. Hot laps begin at 4 p.m., with racing at 5 p.m.
Grandstand admission is $25 (ages 16 and up), $10 for Students (ages 10-15) and Kids 9 and under are FREE.
Pit admission is $35, with no license required.
